FORT KENT - The University of Maine at Fort Kent Board of Visitors’ Business Breakfast Serieswill present an informational forum on the future of “Mining in Maine” and the potential for mining development of Bald Mountain, on Thursday, May 3 at 10 a.m. in the Nadeau Hall Teleconference Room on the UMFK campus.
Jim Irving, president of J.D. Irving, Limited will be the guest speaker for the forum.
Admission to the forum is free. Pre-registration is required by calling 834-7557 or by email at: email@example.com by Wednesday, April 25. Seating is limited.
A bill to change the state’s mining laws, LD 1853, An Act To Improve Environmental Oversight and Streamline Permitting for Mining in Maine, passed both chambers of the state legislature earlier this month. The bill now awaits action by Governor Paul LePage.
If enacted, the law would hold significant potential for the mining of gold, silver, copper and zinc on Bald Mountain, which is located northwest of Ashland and Portage. Bald Mountain is owned by J.D. Irving and Prentiss & Carlisle.
For further information on the forum, please call 834-7557.
